Frenemies:

Allegations that the United States has been bugging EU embassies has set a tone of indignation and distrust between the EU and the US, supposed friendly nations. Trade deals and future negotiations reportedly hang in the balance. French President Franois Hollande has declared the spying must stop "immediately".
The US has no plans to end surveillance programs, as reported in June.



The outrage is not phasing President Barack Obama, nor seemingly changing US national security policy.

From BeforeItsNews.com:

President Obama remarked about the National Security Agency spying on EU diplomats and foreign nations by suggesting that governments spy on each other all the time and that the outrage expressed by France and Germany is blown out of proportion.

Obama said: We should stipulate that every intelligence service not just ours, but every European intelligence service, every Asian intelligence service, wherever theres an intelligence service heres one thing that theyre going to be doing: Theyre going to be trying to understand the world better, and whats going on in world capitals around the world. If that werent the case, then thered be no use for an intelligence service. Source

Meanwhile, NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowdens asylum claims to several European Union countries have yet to be processed. If the spying issue is as deal-breaking as France and Germany are suggesting it is, there should be no qualms in granting Snowden asylum in a show of protest and disagreement.
Their ultimate decisions will tell how far EU nations wish to push back against US global surveillance.
